I Was There: The Great War Interviews
Using never-before-seen interview footage with soldiers and civilians, illuminates the personal experience of the Great War, through the eyes of those who survived it.
In the early 1960s, the BBC interviewed close to 300 eye-witnesses of the First World War for the landmark series The Great War. But only a tiny fraction of the recorded interviews made it to air. The film negatives were preserved by the Imperial War Museum and 50 years after they were filmed, this programme presents the very best of the original interview material. Most of it has never been broadcast before.
I Was There is a moving tribute to the human face of war - from the horrors of artillery bombardment and the anguish of young men forced to become killers, to fleeting outbreaks of peace on the battlefield, and the heart-breaking stories of the women on the home front who feared for those closest to them.
This is the Great War as visceral, lived reality, with eyewitnesses still spry, alert and passionate. It is the closest we’ll ever get to what it was really like for those who were there.

Amazing testimonies; real war stories, without glorification of it.
I don't know what would've been worse; waiting for zero hour or going over the top... and the stories of the poor deserters. No words can explain it.
